If you're in the DC area you may need a hiding place more than I do. Oklahoma is the 19th most heavily armed state. DC on the other hand is the second most heavily armed place behind only Wyoming.
Oregon, close to the other Washington. Turns out folk are armed the the teeth out here as well.

I have said it before- All my life, it has always been an absolute mystery to me how Hitler gained power. Not saying this is the same but looking at the USA now, - I can now understand the social dynamics that allowed it to happen.

Ha ha. Not heard of that one - and I won’t be committing it to memory!

Godwin is using the same technique for generating self-publicity as Mystic Meg when she wrote her Sunday horoscopes. “Watch out for a welcome bit of luck coming your way this week.” she might say.

So if you have any bit of luck at any time in the next 7 days, you recall Mystic Meg. If you get no luck, she never crosses your mind.

Same here.Hitler’s exploits were the biggest world event in the last century. Hardly surprising that the topic will arise with some regularity - and when it does, you think Godwin was right. But nothing ever triggers you to think he was wrong.

Godwin wasn't implying that any mention of Nazis is inapt. There are occasions when it's entirely appropriate since they're a type of benchmark for specific behaviour and circumstances. For example the 'unite the right' racists in attendance at Charlottesville were labelled Nazis by many. The reaction of the creator of Godwins law?

I admire your stubbornness on this issue and you're right.
